These are gorgeous huipils, or over blouses, embroidered and worn by Mayan woman in Aldama Magdalenas, Chiapas. The lovely deep striped purple blouse is complimented by the fuzzy embroidery, in black. The colors combine beautifully. It's not fitted so it is perfect for wearing with skinny jeans or with a belt over a full skirt. These are woven as two separate strips on a backstrap loom, then made into blouses with the embroidery around the neck and the stitching down the center. These are not made of cotton but some kind of light wool synthetic. Embroidery is black wool.
The size is small to medium. They are basically a square shape so they are not fitted and VERY comfortable. They are closed on the sides so can either be worn over another top or worn alone.
Every one is unique.
